Right, here’s the skinny, we’re reporting this more for conversation sake than anything else.
Screengeek are reporting that they’ve heard from sources close to the MCU that“Marvel Studios is considering having Vincent D’Onofrio reprise his Wilson Fisk role from Daredevil in Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
Now, let us add, before going on, that they are also claiming Andrew Garfield may return as Spider-man in Sony’s sinister Six movie, so we’re just stressing how we don’t see there being much to this.
Wouldn’t it be great?
We reported earlier today how Agents of SHIELD actress Chloe Bennett was very frank about how the Marvel TV Shows are unimportant to the movie makers, so we imagine, given that over the last year Daredevil actor Charlie Cox said he feared a different actor would play him if he ever appeared in the movies (here), while Joss Whedon said that as far as the movies were concerned Phil Coulson is dead (here), there’s very little chance of this happening.
Tonally alone this seems very unlikely; could you see a character who killed someone by repeatedly smashing his head in a car door until it closed fighting Tom Holland’s Spidey?
No, neither can we… that said, if Vincent D’Onofrio did come over as Wilson Fisk, it means Punisher is out there with Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron fist, Luke Cage and more.
So it would definitely be a good thing… but sadly, not likely.
If there’s more we’ll let you know gang.
Vincent D’onofrio seems to be totally in the dark about this news, which is as much as we expected.
But, he’s keen… he told Twitter:

We’d still love to see it, though…
